Labex GRAL, Grenoble Alliance for Integrated Structural & Cell Biology

The GRAL “Laboratory of excellence” (Grenoble Alliance for Integrated Structural Cell Biology) is constituted by two institutes (BIG – IBS). The GRAL’S priority is deciphering and integrating knowledge on the structure and dynamics of proteins and their function in the cellular context, both in space and time. This approach will allow the understanding of the modulation of the biological functions, and will open the way to major advances in health, environment and biotechnologies.
